Mystagogy is a lifelong journey of growing closer to God, deepening our faith. It’s Greek root is the same as the root of mystery. In the biblical and Church traditions, a mystery is not something we solve — it is something we enter into with God in a sense of wonder, respect and awe. It is a lifelong journey of deepening the understanding and practice of the faith. Each of us are still living, learning, growing in and called to share our faith.

Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism
Have you ever been unable to explain why Catholics believe what they do? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith in the Old Testament. It was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. While designed as a faith sharing Bible study, participants will also gain an apologetic understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic Teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic faith with the Word of God. This study will focus on the elements found in the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more. **This is Part 2 of this study. However, Part 1 is not a prerequisite. *** VIDEOS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE!!
